I have a CLEVO laptop... it's probably a different system, but it uses
the same chipset, so most things (linux related) should be equal between
our systems.

Check out the following webpages

Thomas Winischhofers website contains new X and fbdev drivers that work
with the SiS chipset. You need to compile the fbdev driver into your
kernel, and use his XFree4.1 driver (by copying it over the current sis
driver in the Xfree package).

With these drivers you'll be able to use 2D and 3D acceleration, and
most features of the chipset.

If you have other problems, check out my own site (maniac.nl) or post a
new message with more detailed info regarding your problems.
